Donald Trump was beaming when he took the stage this afternoon at a rally in New Hampshire, and the large crowd was already tittering with excitement.
"I need to open with a very critical, breaking news announcement," Trump began, followed by a roar from the crowd. "The FBI has just sent a letter to Congress informing them that they have discovered new e-mails pertaining to the former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's investigation. And they are reopening the case into her criminal and illegal conduct that threatens the security of the United States of America."
The crowd went wild and began chanting "Lock her up! Lock her up!"
Trump continued, "Hillary Clinton's corruption is on a scale we have never seen before. We must not let her take her criminal scheme into the Oval Office. I have great respect for the fact that the FBI and the Department of Justice are now willing to have the courage to right the horrible mistake that they made. This was a grave miscarriage of justice that the American people fully understood. And it is everybody's hope that it is about to be corrected."
After pausing, Trump added, "So that is a big announcement that I heard ten minutes ago, and I guess obviously most of you folks have heard about. And in all fairness, and for all the people who have suffered for doing so much less, including just recently, 4-star General James Cartwright, General Petraeus, and many others, perhaps finally justice will be done."
"With that said," Trump concluded, "the rest of my speech is going to be so boring."
Meanwhile, as Hillary's plane landed in Iowa following the FBI announcement, she refused to get off as planned, instead huddling with her aides, according to a NBC news alert posted by Breaking News. A little while later, she deplaned, waving at the crowd and showing no reaction to the damaging news.
BuzzFeedNews reporter Ruby Cramer tried to pass the delay off as Hillary having a photoshoot with famous portrait photographer Annie Leibovitz. But it seems like a photoshoot wouldn't have been top of Hillary's mind at that moment.
What do you think about all of this?
